If we ever get the FAA to come around to allow civilian use you may have a market here in the US. Can you give us a description of the capabilities of the aircraft?

Hi Simon.
Love your UAV. I was wondering what plane your airframe is based on or where I can obtain plans for a similar model?
Thank you for your time.
